Tiny NEC WiMAX router has Wi-Fi support

NEC Japan has introduced the world's smallest WiMAX router with Wi-Fi capability on Tuesday. The Aterm WM3300R is battery-powered but can still reach 40Mbps downstream and 10Mbps upstream when on a suitably fast 4G network. The pocketable device is meant to share access through Wi-Fi but can also be plugged into a PC using a USB adapter for mobile Internet access on a specific system.

On the short-range network, traffic is locked down with up to 128-bit encryption and allows for both WEP and WPA. A multi-SSID feature lets users differentiate two connected Wi-Fi devices and run separate networks. The rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack is said to provide as much as 2.5 hours of operation.

The Aterm WM3300R supports Windows 7, Vista and XP SP2 or later. The device is expected to cost the equivalent of about $270 in Japan when it is released in mid April. [via Impress]
